New nudge feature

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

Another brilliant suggestion from lolageek – we’re calling it the nudge feature. It only really applies if you have a team with two or more people. If someone seems to be ignoring a task, you can give them a nudge! MyChores suggests some text for you, but you can customise your message before you send [...]

Exciting ideas for MyChores developments!

Monday, February 12th, 2007

I had a very good weekend with jinkies brainstorming some excellent new ideas for MyChores … i’m so excited about the new developments we’ve planned!
The first is rather trivial, but will involve a slightly different ‘edit task’ screen. You’ll still choose daily/weekly/monthly but also have ticky boxes of days that it may occur on. ‘Every [...]

Little problem

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

Apologies to everyone who uses Twitter integration and experienced errors over the last couple of days.
I had separated some bits of code and forgot to link them all up properly to make the Twitter update. This caused an error which meant that the task’s next due date was not moved on. I’m sorry for the [...]

Trumpet fanfare: Customisable workload lists are here!!

Monday, February 5th, 2007

Wow, after talking about this for months, i hope it’s going to meet everybody’s expectations! I have today implemented customisable workload lists! What does that mean to you? Not a thing, unless you want it to mean something. If you like MyChores the way it is, it’ll still be exactly the same for you. If [...]

A small change when ticking tasks

Monday, February 5th, 2007

It is MyChores Monday! :D I have made a small change which should make no difference to you, but if something seems to be wrong please do tell me.
All i have done is separate the portion of code which marks a task as done. This is in preparation for being able to select multiple tasks [...]

Ability to move a task between lists

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

It should now be possible to edit a task and change the list to which it belongs. This feature has been noticeably lacking for some people, so i hope it meets your needs.
I think it was Aster who first suggested this to me, and who reminded me of it this morning, so thank you Aster! [...]

MyChores statistics

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

I have worked hard on getting some interesting, meaningful statistics and presenting them nicely on the new statistics page. I will update these monthly with the results of the previous month’s activities.
Here’s an example of a chart showing how many tasks were completed each day in January, and how many people were completing them each [...]
